Form processing in ASP

Hi,

I have a client who has a site developed in ASP.  I maintain textual changes to it but not the ASP aspects.  He has a page that collects email addresses but doesn't know what happens to them and asked me to look in to it.  I know nothing about ASP.  Coldfusion, yes.  But not ASP.

Can anyone offer any insight?  I attached a text version of the forms page.

Much appreciated.

it would be good to attach the form page code, as well as whatever page it posts its data to (this can usually be found in the form ACTION attribute). my guess is the form either saves them to a database or sends out some email to those addresses

Hi Monty,

It appears to point to itself in the action= parameter.  I just captured the generated code and attached it to this reply.  I don't know where to start to find out what it does.

that just means it's posting to itself, that's normal.

still no attachment....

also, we'll need the original code file to see what's going on. giving us the generated html file won't show us the server side code going on

you'll need to provide us with the registerUsersCollectInfo.aspx.cs file as this is for .NET and not classic asp (big difference between the two)

It is being stored in the database.

Where exactly? You will have to check the stored procedure addUser

Ah ok.  I do have a copy of their DB, so I can track that down.

Thanks much!

does a little more than that :)

upon submission, it checks to see if an email has been entered in, if not, it displays a message saying no email found. it then checks to see if the email address has been entered and saved previously, if it has, it tells the user that they've already registered.

if an email address was entered in AND it's unique, it then saves the info, (email and date registered), and then sends the user a thank you for registering message

He only wanted to know where the emails were stored if it all.

True; the client wondered how to tap in to that list if it has been getting collected.
